Mr. Bunion: Now theres the kind of life to lead. Studying nature, then, recording its beauties. Huh!
Mr. Bunion: Do you mind me standing behind you? I love to watch an artist at work. yes!
Artist: You are welcome sir.
Mr. Bunion: You have to feel it in your soul, don't you?
Artist: Yes, one must put one's whole soul into his work to get the feeling, the atmosphere, the poetry and the warmth of the scene before one.
Mr. Bunion: You are about finished aren't you?
Artist: Yes, I think I'm about finished. I have worked faithfully on it for weeks. I aimed to get every detail of the scene as nature has so beautifully arranged them.
Mr. Bunion: You ought to get a pretty good price for that, eh?
Artist: Yes! I ought to! But I probably won't . Painting pictures and selling them are two different things. I have found out, sadly.
Mr. Bunion: What do you value it at? Its a great picture!
Artist: Well, I value it at easily, a couple of thousands of dollars [sic] what the picture buyers value it at will be considerable less. I'll no doubt get rid of it for twelve or thirteen dollars.
Artist: It will then be placed in a seven hundred dollar frame some chump will snap it up on account of the gilt and matting.
Mr. Bunion: Then I suppose after you are dead the picture becomes priceless.
Artist: Yep! After I'm planted it will be worth millions. Oh, well! I love to paint, anyway! [HARD KNOCKS]
Mr. Bunion: He's one of the brothers.
